By Bollywood Hungama News Network

Akshay Kumar’s recent release Good Newwz hit screens last year. Since then the Raj Mehta directorial that also features Kareena Kapoor Khan has been doing brisk business. But for Akshay, it isn’t just this film that has been raking in the moolah at the box office; in fact, the actor has fast become one of the most bankable star names in the industry. With back to back hits, Akshay Kumar has fast emerged as the most successful stars. Besides this, looking at Khiladi Kumar’s box office record, another surprising fact comes into view, that of Akshay becoming the first actor to cross Rs. 700 cr. NETT at the Indian box office in a single year.
